Dramatic Prahan Hotel by Techné Architects


The Prahan Hotel is a genuine piece of architecture located in Melbourne, Australia which was revamped by using oversized concrete pipes, with the help of Techné Architects.  These pipes were used both in terms of functionality and aesthetically pleasing.

The two levels of the building are linked by a glazed courtyard that allows the natural light to flood the entire space. The room is traversed by a floating booth which was created from half pipes sustained by steel posts, much of the steel structure being exposed.

Though its appearance may seem a little dramatic, everything changes as you step inside, where you’ll feel the intimacy and the warmth of the place.
